In the heart of the UK's vibrant alternative metal scene, Scarsun emerges with their latest single "Better Than Drowning", a profound exploration of personal struggle and the indomitable human spirit.

At the core of "Better Than Drowning" lies a rich tapestry of metaphors, meticulously woven by the band to resonate with listeners on a deeply personal level. The song's lyricism, brimming with introspective and emotive narratives, invites fans to find pieces of their own stories within its verses. "This song is full of metaphors and I love writing this way," shares Melody, the band's lead. The song's evolution from feelings of betrayal to a resounding affirmation of self-worth encapsulates its core message: "to fight for what you believe in and to always stand tall and know your worth."

Scarsun's journey, marked by hurdles ranging from lineup changes to public relations challenges, mirrors the thematic essence of their latest single. "This single is a testament to everything we have overcome together," the band reflects. It's this narrative of resilience, of finding a path through the tumult, that not only defines "Better Than Drowning" but also embodies Scarsun's overarching philosophy. Their music becomes a beacon for anyone navigating life's tempests, affirming that perseverance is not just a choice but a necessity.

Within the potent lyrics of "Better Than Drowning," the chorus emerges as a pivotal moment of empowerment and defiance. For Melody, it's a personal anthem against the constraints of societal norms and the voices that seek to diminish individual truth. "This song is a middle finger to those who try to tell you how to live your life," Melody asserts. It's a declaration that personal happiness and authenticity transcend conventional boundaries, a message that resonates at the heart of Scarsun's music.

Recorded at Unit 28 Studios in Newport, South Wales, and produced alongside Jeff Rose, known for his work with acts like Skindred and Bullet For My Valentine, "Better Than Drowning" captures Scarsun's evolution. The single, with its raw energy and emotional depth, finds kindred spirits in fans of bands like Faith No More, Evanescence, and Jinjer. Its lyrics, particularly the chorus—"I’ll keep drinking because my boat is only sinking / So it’s Better Than Drowning"—offer a poignant metaphor for choosing one's battles and finding solace amidst chaos.

With "Better Than Drowning", Scarsun not only cements their place in the alternative metal landscape but also offers a powerful narrative on struggle, resilience, and the unyielding pursuit of self-identity. This single is more than just a musical release; it's an anthem for those wrestling with self-doubt and societal pressures, a reminder that in the face of life's storms, embracing one's truth is indeed "Better Than Drowning."
